Seahouses Juvenile Starling

 

This juvenile starling looked in better shape than the adult bird, but it had learnt pretty quickly that humans were a source of food supply.

This one looks quite self-satisfied, Tom...perhaps Mum&Dad are still providers.
Tom Wilson: It looked as though he was fending for himself at this point, Ray.
Very simple, but pleasing looking bird. Nice shot!
Tom Wilson: Starlings are so common that one doesn't normally think of taking a pic!

It's all to do with survival Tom..
Tom Wilson: As I said to Brian yesterday smile
The humans appear to have supplied sufficiently, Tom!
Tom Wilson: It seemed to be doing OK!

I hope this little fellow is still be able for 'lift-off'... It looks like it has his afternoon snooze...
Tom Wilson: I didn't see much flying going on - more in the nature of hopping around smile
i like the glint in the deep set eye, Tom. makes this bird look tough enough.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush.

That beak looks a seriously useful tool Tom.
Tom Wilson: It could give you a nasty jab!

Shots like this makes little brown jobs, also look pretty.
Tom Wilson: So common that their pictorial value is overlooked, Louis. I guess you have them in S.A too
The look of the starling yesterday was quite normal. They do plump up their feathers in an air conditioning mode.
Tom Wilson: Yes, this one does have them puffed out somewhat!
Quite a cute little character isn't it.
Tom Wilson: I thought it was worth an exposure, Brian.
Very colourful when viewed up close, Tom, Starlings that is...smile
Tom Wilson: We tend to take them for granted, don't we?

He/she looks well fed-up. I thought they should care for themselves- without any human help.
Tom Wilson: Yes, the humans create artificial situations and probably increase the population.
bel oiseau!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Merci, Jean Pierre
